The Name of Red by Beena Khan

The woman in Red has a secret admirer.A second chance at love means confessing your secrets to a stranger. Amazon Top 30 Bestseller in Asian American Literature. It was a rainy, winter night when Kabir saw her for the first time. A mysterious woman in that red dress seeking shelter came inside the restaurant he was busy working in—primarily the bar. Night after night, drink after drink, she comes back to the same spot. Hundreds of men try to speak with her daily, but she dismisses them. She’s always reading, always surrounded by books and booze. She’s not looking for love. He’s never met anyone like her before. He didn’t want to disturb her peace. And, he didn’t want to be her next reject. So, he decided to leave her books anonymously with notes in them. He just didn’t expect to get caught so soon. "Not your average love story." Two strangers on the same path. Survivors. Companions. They will be each other’s salvation. The Name of Red is the story of two strangers, two different personalities who meet on a winter, rainy night who challenge each other. They have a connection which blossoms into a friendship due to their fondness of books. But they both have secrets that can bind them together or threaten their newfound relationship forever. This is Kabir’s and Red’s story, book#1 of the duology. This can be read as a standalone book, and it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger.
